RPPS School Council Executive Elections
At the center of connection between students and the administration is the RPPS School Council Executive. Every parent is a member of this school council by virtue of having a child in the school. The School Council Executive is an elected body with a membership of 15 parent volunteers. This year’s council executive will be elected on Tuesday, September 27th.

If you are interested in joining the RPPS School Council Executive you are invited to submit a nomination form and stand for election. This is not a very formal process and you can submit your nomination form at the meeting.
